Batman: Arkham City Release Date Announced
Warner’s finally given a date to Batman: Arkham City for the US: Tuesday, October 18.
The publisher’s also confirmed it’ll launch in the UK on October 21.
The sequel to Arkham Asylum, then published by Square Enix/Eidos, was teased at the 2009 Video Game Awards, but was formally announced last autumn as Arkham City.
Warner will handle publishing duties this time, having taken a majority share in the London studio last year.
The sequel sees Arkham Asylum in no state to hold any more prisoners, with a part of Gotham City sealed off to create Arkham City.
Hugo Strange and Two-Face are two new villains for the game, as well as Harley Quinn and Joker returning from the first game. Catwoman is also involved this time round.
